Candy from Santa

Today was Santa Claus day in Coldwater!

What fun we planned to have!

First we went to the theater for a FREE matinee movie, The Tale of Despereaux, AND for free pop and popcorn for the kids!! The sorority in town supplies the pop and popcorn for the kids and it is always a big hit in town. THANKS ladies!!

After the movie, Santa and Mrs. Claus come to town on a big, red fire truck and hand out bags of candy to the kids. There are no pictures of the handing out of the candy...as you can imagine what small children getting candy from Santa must be like!!

SANTA...I KNOW HIM (name that movie)!!

What comes next is a drawing for lots of prizes from the businesses in town. There are the coveted gift certificates to Dave's Pizza Oven, gift certificates to other local businesses, toys for the kids, and the grand prize TWO bicycles!!

Preston & Kirstin wait for their numbers to be called

Okay, so maybe there was more monkey business than anything!

Kirstin soon gets Preston back in line..."Turn around and listen!"

Vanna White (???) shows up on the firetruck to show off all the toys that are being given away.

After all the toys and candy have been given away, Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves head back to the sleigh. Christmas is less than a week away you know and there is still so much to be done!

We can't wait to see what he leaves us under our tree!!
